There's no way we could be this lucky... right?!

So that's why!
Sure, he showed up in a couple recognizable films such as Jumper and Takers — both of which were pretty much panned by critics — but he hasn't taken on projects like you'd expect a star in his prime to do.
After a few years off and spending time on his farm with baby mama Rachel Bilson, Hayden opened up to the Los Angeles Times about his break from acting, saying:
The 34-year-old never publicly addressed the topic until Wednesday night, when she and fellow momma Kristen Bell were honored by No Kid Hungry as their newest Champions!
When Rachel spoke to the crowd, The O.C. alum explained that, while she's only a momma-of-one, her maternal instincts kick in for any child:
"I'm a new mom…ish. She's almost 1, which is crazy. But you kind of feel like a mom to all kids at this point. Finding out that so many kids in our country are hungry is just not OK. So, getting involved was very important to us."
On the event's red carpet, she revealed why she feels so passionately about this, explaining:
Why are dads so adorable?
In this new clip, the 90 Minutes in Heaven actor explains what he loves most about being a dad to the nine-month-old.
His answer is definitely going to make you go "awwww"!
So go to the 4:00 mark to hear Hayden get all gushy (below)!
Introducing Briar Rose to the world…
And on Sunday, the former Hart Of Dixie star took to Instagram to — sort of — show her off to the world!
The snap features boyfriend Hayden Christensen blowing bubbles as their daughter wears a cute flower-patterned hat!
Style definitely runs in the family!
The hip couple are notoriously private so we're glad they gave their millions of social media followers a glimpse of their bundle of joy!
Also curious as to why they named their baybay Briar Rose?!
It's a reference to the classic fairy tale Sleeping Beauty where Princess Aurora is given the lovely moniker by the fairies who shelter her!
How clever! We just hope Rachel shares more pics of her brood in the future! ADORBZ!
The cute couple share a kiss in a new selfie Rachel posted to her Instagram on Thursday.
And judging by her use of the arrow-stricken heart emoji as a caption, it's safe to say the 33-year-old is smitten.
While the picture is perfect, the one thing that could have made this shot better would have been the addition of baby Briar Rose!
The parents have yet to share a pic of their eight-month-old daughter!
Maybe one day, but until then, we're just glad to see that they're one happy family!
